Saul Canelo Alvarez vs. Jermell Charlo: Odds, How to Watch Undisputed Super Middleweight Title Bout

The past few months of 2023 offered a slugging run of fights in the squared circle. Yet, every year, the summer has to come to an end eventually.

For boxing fans, the heat is still on through this Saturday, September 30th when undisputed super middleweight champ Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (59-2-2, 39 KO) battles Jermell "Iron Man" Charlo (35-1-1, 19 KO) at Sin City's T-Mobile Arena -- home of the reigning NHL champion Vegas Golden Knights.

Alvarez' IBF, WBA, WBC and WBO world titles will be on the line. He and Charlo serve as Main event for a 12-bout fight card.

With Mexican Independence Day recently passing, there will be an influx of pride in Las Vegas this weekend. Canelo will be defending his undisputed status against Charlo (not to be confused with his twin brother Jermall Charlo), who is in action for the fourth time over the past 17 months.

Fighter History

Canelo Alvarez

Arguably boxing's most prevalent icon of the current era, Alvarez is the fighting national pride of El Tri. Simply, in Mexico, there is no sporting superstar bigger than Canelo. At the ripe age of 33, he is back in Vegas for his third time in 17 months; his June 2023 bout against John Ryder was south of the border.

It is not breaking news to claim Alvarez is a thoroughly impressive fighter. At 5-foot-8, he is built thick from the shoulders up, using elite neck strength for lighting-quick head movement in the ring. Simply, he is a defensive nightmare with equally as scary counter-punching abilities -- the longer Charlo will need to watch his liver.

As well regarded, Canelo has never been knocked out. After all, he has only suffered two career losses: one to undefeated Floyd Mayweather and the other to the much larger DmitriI Bivol, both via decision. When looking at the boxing odds on FanDuel Sportsbook, it makes sense that the Will the Fight go the Distance? market has a longer price on "No" at +182.

Alvarez enters this weekend's scrap with a 66.1% KO rate through 63 professional contests. The Ring and Boxing Writers Association of America both have Canelo ranked as the No. 4 active pound-for-pound (P4P) boxer. On Saturday, he will hunt for his 60th win against the taller, slighter Charlo.

Vegas may be U.S. soil, but expect the crowd out west to be heavily in favor of Canelo -- especially considering September's Mexican holiday.

Jermell Charlo

Moving up from junior middleweight, the Texas native Charlo -- also age 33 -- is back in the ring after a year and a half between bouts. We last saw Charlo fight in Carson, California, winning a rematch against Brian Carlos Castano in emphatic fashion. The two previously fought to a draw 10 months prior, but a short left hook in the 10th round of the second meeting from Charlo put Castano down for the night.

On Christmas 2018, Charlo received his lone professional loss, suffering a unanimous decision to Tony "Superbad" Harrison in Brooklyn for the WBC super welterweight title. Still, Charlo was able to avenge the loss a year later, scoring a TKO victory over Harrison to reclaim the hardware. Again, the left hook was a winner for Charlo.

Charlo is not built quite as sturdily as Canelo, but the American challenger does hold a couple physical advantages. Standing at six-foot-even, Charlo boasts a standing reach of 73 inches; for comparison, Alvarez's reach is only measured at 70.5 inches.

Does "Iron Man" have the necessary core strength to go into deep water with Canelo? His camp certainly believes so. Charlo has critical recognition, as well. BWAA also has Jermell on their P4P rankings, showing up at No. 9. On the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board, Charlo is currently 10th P4P; the list has Canelo in 7th.
